the series itself was amazing. when u compare it to the show (which is why I wanted to read it) everything is sooo different. the sisters never met. not to mention the killer itself changing. but ill admit by the start of this book you had a feeling who the killer was going to end up being.

Now that Nisha's dead, the community is in mourning. Nobody knows how she could have drowned since she was an excellent swimmer. Only Emma knows the truth. Nisha obviously found an important piece in Sutton's murder, something that could blow the cover of who killed Sutton. But everything changes when Sutton's body is found in the canyon. And everyone thinks that it's poor Emma. So when her best friend from her old life , Alex, is on the news, Emma realizes that Alex must be worried crazy about her. She also realizes that Alex could blow her cover. So when detective Quinlin comes to interview "Sutton", the simplest thing ruins everything: her cavity fillings. Sutton never had a cavity a day in her life. Now she is the number one suspect in the case, but she's almost 100% sure that it's Garrett.The Mercer's kick her out, so she goes to the one place she knows that she'll be welcome, Ethan's. She tells him her suspicions and eventually agree to look for evidence at Nisha's house, though she does wonder why Ethan was dead set against it in the first place.but her mistake was not suspecting the person she let inside .

Oh my god! I read the last one and I was completely blown away by who the killer was, because I always felt like it must be that person, but if that was the case it would completely destroy Emma, which it did, and me as well. Anyways, not being a fan of Pretty Little Liars, I absolutely loved The Lying Game series, i think because the girls were less crazy than the ones in pretty Little Liars and the plot was always full of action. That is why I preferred the 6 book series opposed to the PLL series that has way to many books and not enough plot for my taste. I also feel that the characters in The Lying Game were each likable and they loved each other to pieces, and Sutton's funeral was so heartbreaking, not to mention the other multiple scenes in the book that were equally heartbreaking. To be honest, I cried for half the book, so props to the author for creating such lovable characters, even the killer, oh man, why do I feel so bad for the killer, if only he/she had waited until the Mercer's found Emma, then everyone would have been happy. And Emma, she was digging her own grave by digging into her sister's death, I know she needed the truth, but in her case "ignorance is bliss". Okay I'll stop here, don't want to give it away, but I really hope the author can write another book about how everyone is doing in the future, oh and I would also like a movie franchise or tv show that, yunno actually follows the plot of the books. Now I got to go and reread the whole series again just to twist that betrayal knife further in my heart, cause I want to remember all the scenes Emma had with the killer and feel that pain all over again. I joke. But I will reread the books and definitely buy them.

Altogether these books weren't too bad. They had a good plot, but I thought it could have been done better. There were alot of attempted surprises, but most of them were predicitble, just like the ending of the last book. I wouldn't recommend them if you were looking for a surprising mystery, but if you just need something to read then there weren't too bad.

I pumped to read this one !!!

Eenie meenie miney mo, who's the murder that killed her? In this sixth book of The Lying Game series, Sara Shepard, the ever #1 New York Times bestselling author, is finally revealing what truly happened the night Sutton died, no more secrets, lies, just one shocking truth. We would do whatever it is to find the truth, but sometimes the truth hurts... Emma, our protagonist, learned that the hard way, but before she has time to grieve for her loss she must run, the killer will do whatever it takes to make sure Emma never breathes a word. "Seven Minutes in Heaven " is a nerve-racking conclusion that made me want to reread the whole series, and savor every moment of thrill and anticipation . Wonderfully written from title to last line. Sutton Mercer had a perfect life, popular friends, a gorgeous boyfriend, a life anyone would kill for, and then someone did. Now she could only watch from beyond her grave as the killer forced her long-lost twin sister, Emma, to step into her shoes and fool everyone she loved that she is Sutton. Months had passed since the switch, and Emma's desperate to solve her sister's murder. She had discovered Sutton's complicated history with her friends and family, one that even Sutton was ashamed to remember, unearthed several life-changing secrets. But one thing she still doesn't know is the identity of the killer , everyone had once had a motive, but she keeps running into dead ends. Emma's time was cut short when Sutton's body was find in Sabino Canyon, instantly questions started to raise now that they know Sutton Mercer had a twin, the question is who's the dead one? The truth is bound to come out and when it does Emma will be the number one suspect, unless the killer get to her first... In a town embellished with lies, Emma should've known that she could trust no one Reading this last book of The Lying Game series had been an emotional journey for me. I was filled with giddy when I first got my hands on this novel, knowing it will be the last book I was taking my time reading it word for word, and I can honestly say that I'm sad to see it end. Perhaps part of me had wanted it to continue like Sara Shepard 's other series Pretty Little Liars, but it was for the best, Emma deserves a ending if not a happily-ever-after. It finished with a glorious ending with everything I could have wanted, I feel that Emma and Sutton had grown so much from everything that had happened. Even though the murder was very oblivious to me, I still couldn't help but grasp when the truth was exposed. A story about friendship, family, betrayal, mistakes, despair, redemption, letting go and moving on, and finally staying true to yourself and being happy with who you are. The title is "Seven Minutes in Heaven ", and I'm sensing a pattern here, the previous books are, "Never Have I Ever", "Two Truths and a Lie", "Hide and Seek"...The titles are almost all the names of childhood games, and for this one Emma's closer to danger as ever so it's reasonable to be called seven minutes in heaven. This series is one that I won't ever forget, just like Sutton will always be remembered by her friends and family, this book will always be remember by a million fans.
